Located in South Royalton right on Vermont route 14, Riverside Walls offers a handful of mixed sport/trad climbs, with bolted anchors for top roping. Climbs are all pretty much slab, and range from around 5.6 to 5.10d. About half a dozen boulder problems are there, too. These also range on the easier to moderate side. The vast majority of information here was taken from the CRAG-VT forums here

A friend climbed Shiester on the Sport Wall yesterday. After cleaning the anchor and setting up the rappel, one of the bolts popped out.

Be careful and use good judgment when trusting the bolts here - or set natural anchors.
